Remember last week when I shared with you my Caramel Gingerbread Ice Cream Cake? Well I used my favorite recipe for Chocolate Gingerbread cookies to make that. I wanted to share that recipe with you all here today because I love you guys & I know you will really LOVE these cookie bars. Plus- you won’t believe just how simple they are.
